  • Very good docile temperament.

  • What We Think

    Like most Rhode Island hybrids the Rhode Rock has a great temperament and is a great first time hen. Also being bread with a Plymouth Rock they are very hardy and lay a lovely brown egg. Rhode Rocks integrate well with smaller hybrids like the Ranger and Amber Star, but because they are a Plymouth Rock hybrid they will also mix well with Cou Cous and Blues. A lovely looking bird that can mix very well with most birds and will lay a large amount. A great place to start, especaly if you looking to add more to your flock later on.

This review is for a similar product: Amber Star Hen

 Amber Star Hen We bought a selection of 3 breeds of hen for our first time and the Amber Star is by far the most sociable - Very friendly and happy to be picked up. She also lays pretty much every day, can\'t remember the last time we went a day without an egg from her All the birds we bought from here were healthy and have been a joy to have, even with their diverse personalities!

This review is for a similar product: Blue Hybrid Hen

 Blue Hybrid Hen I got 2 blues and 2 columbians recently, my first chickens. The service and advice I got from Chris in the poultry centre was excellent and I know the staff at Bell Plantation will be happy to help if I have any other questions. The blues themselves are lovely chickens. They are very attractive looking (for chickens!), have a nice friendly temperament and seem to be getting on well with the other birds. Combined with the fact that they are hardy and trouble-free and good layers (we had our first egg within 24 hours of their arrival) why wouldn\'t you get these birds?!

This review is for a similar product: Columbian Blacktail Hen

 Columbian Blacktail Hen I wanted to start keeping chickens in my gardens and I wanted some help and advice about what I should buy. The customer service was excellent, they were so helpful and told me everything I needed to know. I couldn\'t have asked for more. I buy all of my stuff from here and I have never had any problems with anything. Excellent service.
